“I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
Today, our featured Lucky 7 e-book, Barbara Suter’s Dorothy on the Rocks, takes us somewhere–shall we say–under the rainbow. Suter’s washed-up and wayward heroine might be a far cry from Judy Garland’s on-screen Dorothy, but she is no less enchanting… and definitely funnier. And you can land smack in the middle of this Dorothy’s world for just $1.99 through the end of August. Hurry, there are only a couple of more days to follow the e-book road.
In Maggie Barlow’s world, reality is overrated. So what if her singing career has hit a sour note or she’s no longer the ingénue that she used to be? So what if she drinks and smokes a bit too much or likes to chat with a fairy godperson who appears to her from time to time? She’s the queen of denial and an actress to boot—she can just take on the role of someone she likes better than her sorry self. Regrettably, that role is currently Dorothy in the Little Britches Theater Company’s production of The Wizard of Oz.
Dorothy on the Rocks is the story of a funny, lovable, totally self-destructive woman who, after a night of one-drink-too-many, wakes up with a strange man in her bed: confident, handsome, sexy, twenty-eight-year-old Jack. What happens next is what makes Barbara Suter’s coming-of-middle-age tale so much fun. For when the make-believe is finally stripped away, our hurt, lonely, and very afraid heroine finally takes center stage and finds herself starring in a totally improbable love story. It just might be the role of a lifetime.
“A delightfully witty and charming novel that makes you believe in fairy godmothers and the magic of love.”—Cassandra King, author of The Sunday Wife
